RDA, Sumatra, Weh Llang Gayo, Medium/Dark Roast, Whole Bean and Ground Coffee

The Weh Ilang area is situated in one of the highest valleys in Takengon, a town in the highlands of Aceh. The lofty altitudes at 1600masl and cold temperatures in the evening curb the coffee ripening process. This allows more fruit sugars and sweetness to develop in the beans.

Abdul Karim and Samsudin, the farmers contributing to this lot, utilize organic practices in farming (even though this lot is not certified). Like many ethnic Gayo farmers, they grow Gayo 1 and Gayo 2 varietals. Although their origins are not well-documented, many believe that Gayo 1 is a strain of the Timor variety, while Gayo 2 shares similar characteristics to Timor and Bourbon. Both are commonly found throughout the highlands of this famous coffee region. The cup profile tends to be lighter-bodied than Mandheling coffees from further east.

Sumatran coffee production has a long history, extending to the 17th century when the Dutch East India Company imported coffee plants to Indonesia. Sumatra, Indonesia’s westernmost island, has a wide range of tropical flora, fauna, and microclimates. Farms on Sumatra are typically 0.5 to 2.5 hectares scattered across remote regions, connected by a network of collectors, processors, traders, and exporters to the global market.
